There is no button/ key to turn off Internal Mouse (Touchpad) in a Dell Inspiron 1545 so you may try following the below steps which might help:

    (1)Click start.
    (2)Type device in the search box and select device manager.
    (3)Double click on Mice and other pointing devices.
    (4)Right click on the Internal mouse and select disable.

    Thanks and Regards.

I can not disable touchpad of INSPIRON 1545 of DELL Computers There is no option for disabling touch pad in the MOUSE option of Control Panel


Go to the Control Panel. Under the 'Hardware and Sound' options, click 'Mouse'immortal4u.png

Since you have a Dell laptop, you'll have a special tab called 'Dell touchpad' in the window that pops up. Click on the touchpad picture in the window.

In the new window that appears, click 'Device Select'

Click on the 'Disable' radio button to disable the touchpad completely. If you want to disable the touchpad of your Dell laptop only when an external device like a mouse is attached, check the last option that says 'Disable Touchpad/Pointing Stick when external USB mouse is present'

That's it. You've disabled your laptop's touchpad for good. If you don't find an option to manage your touchpad in Mouse settings, you have to install Synaptics drivers from here. Similar options can be found in other laptops as well.

Good luck ! if your problem is solved don't forget to rate

My right click menu pop's up when ever i try to click on my laptop anywhere, i have a DELL inspiron 1520.


is your pointer set to be opposite... go into control panel and mouse options, and see if you accidentally switched your mouse clicker buttons.... try clicking with the right click, does it still open your 'right-click' menu? does it work normal on an external mouse?

maybe its just a setting issue,... if not then prolly need a new mouse pad...

How do I disable the touchpad?


Try disabling the touch pad in the device manager. If that don't work unplug it from the motherboard. You will have to take the bezel and the keyboard off to unplug the touch pad.

Disable mousepad


hi,
try the Fn+F7 combo, the F7 is usually assigned to the touchpad and is indicated by an icon that's relevant.

This works on most notebooks to turn on or off the touchpad.

. Press F2 or F10 (it varies) to enter your bios setup screens. In these pages is a setting for touch pad only, mouse only or touch pad and mouse or serial. You might check that.

Right click not working


go into the mouse icon in the control panel and make sure its not disabled in there. If it is then enable it. If its not disabled in there then the board underneath your mousepad is bad. The right tactile button undernath the right mouse button is bad so the whole board would need to be replaced cause it comes as one whole board. You can get it directly from Dell or get one from Ebay.

Dell Laptop Trackball Too sensitive!


Easiest thing to do is to use a mouse. Just plug it in (ideally before you switch on), should automatically be recognised and away you go. I hate trackballs and the mousepads and when working on anyone elses laptop, always connect a mouse up.

The cursor doesn't respond to commands given using mousepad.


Sounds like a malfunctioning touchpad. You could try an external mouse and disabling the touchpad in device manager.
